right any kind of peace night if you want and probably more time to come to. the clinic satish sorts of people thirty years on t w. this is the w. news live from berlin the flames i would say but now for the investigation paris firefighters extinguished the place that consumed not just the fifteen i was out there trying to find out how the fire started catering gulf one of the world's most famous laptops also on the program the long road back up to cycling the mozambique
and city f.b.i. or not struggles with a mammoth cleanup after last month's devastating storm to go to free house the homeless and fend off a cholera outbreak. i'm phil gayle welcome to the program. french president emanuel macross says the not done cathedral will be rebuilt following last night's devastating blaze the fire has now been extinguished but much of the twelfth century building has been a destroyed a fire gutted the roof and cause the famous spots a collapse of the parts of the cathedral that were destroyed a shown here in red but the firefighters did manage to save the bell towers and out so walls now investigators are trying to find out the calls of the blaze as people around the world lament the loss of an architectural jewel and symbol of france's heritage.
the moment they spiral not tear down cathedral fell into the raging inferno. hours flames engulf this iconic landmark destroying an eight hundred year old building that it survived two world wars. sauza is gathered to watch as a piece of french history. crumbled before their eyes. it's a monument above and beyond its religious meaning it's something that represents the entire evolution of french civilization. is so it's very dramatic to see something like this happening. this. isn't criticised i felt really angry to learn that such a large beautiful piece of art went up in smoke like that.
i was really shocked so when i heard the news here i ran straight here. french president emmanuel mccollum was quickly at the scene. that get it all you know all but we will rebuild this cathedral all of us together it's probably part of france's destiny and it will be our project for years to come i am committed to this. mission. while donations have already been pledged the damage done is extensive. this is where this weekend's easter services would have been held instead firefighters have been trying to make the area safe as investigations start into what caused this devastating blaze. the fire may be out but one on how to restore this historic building to all its former glory is only just beginning. straight to paris where we joined
a vessel of welcome barbara what talk us through the damage. if you look behind me fill you can see this big scaffolding and underneath there's a sort of v. shaped void now that is where the huge leaden roof of the cathedral was the whole woodwork underneath the whole roof structure burned down that these were timbers that where like seven eight hundred years old they were called the forest because there was so much old oak up there and all this has absolutely gone without a trace in the middle of the cathedral in the middle of the wall there's a huge gaping hole where you can see the sky that's where the spire fell down and sort of broke into the nave on the other hand there is some good news in all this devastation the centuries old oregon could be safe there's might be some more to demonstrate some of the windows going back the stained glass windows famous for
their beauty going back to the thirteenth century some of them have been saved somewhere correct and sort of broke open so there is a tremendous amount of damage some artwork could be carried out last night some was damaged of course in the water and in the fire so the assessment is still taking place of really what exactly was saved what really was destroyed and has to be really built or sort of it and this is the state at the this is the state in paris at the moment so the investigation cost begun what are you hearing. the embassy gaiters say this was negligence pure and simple they have started talking to the workmen who have used this scaffolding to do restoration work exactly around the spire that sort of fell down as the first part of this huge church last night and so what happened and workmen left it to will power tools like didn't or there were some sparks from welding or electrical forte something like
that and the investigators say they made them they might never exactly pin down what the cause was but it was something as beno as that that could cause this huge devastation here in the heart of paris so lots of damage but millions of euros have been pledged to fund the restoration. he had the french rich billionaire families there all of a sudden showing their financial might betancourt the family that owns the cosmetics a corporation not a yacht they put two hundred million on the table the second big law firm and friends in another two hundred billion to tile the energy giant one hundred million so we are now at a cool six hundred million euros that have been put on the table within the first day after this big fire and this is sort of the secret well so france that suddenly decided it's time to sort of show some sort of civic engagement and it's
regarded to very much as part of paris's soul how are people reacting. people have come out to people barely huge crowds last night watching the fire in silence more or less and people who saw people crying and some praying didn't today i mean to call these coming out and looking at what happened in the night instead of just taking in the situation the same the river line dog was crowds on both sides and all around the bridges with the police barriers. to just see what happened to the church this is part of paris hard this is the old heart of paris really this is this is part of the identity of the french capital and also france in itself a sign of this the villa t. and the long galaxy off the french kingdoms throughout the centuries and this was where paris came to celebrate after the second world war ended for instance or to grief like four years ago after the attacks on the batter clan when there was this
big mess held there and thousands of people came out to sort of feel the togetherness of the city so this is a symbol that is very close to every parisienne and so people are grieving in a way and there is a sadness for me permeate permeating the french capital on the state. millions have been pledged to. rebuilding what is being said about the rebuilding when the. building. they're rebuilding yeah the rebuilding still is going to be extremely complicated one expert who talked here today said it could take to fifteen to twenty years this is a very old building going back to the twelve century it has been patched up it's a hodgepodge of like historical layers patched up throughout the centuries it has never been really renovated there was so much in the good side of the government
for years and years and then they gave like two million per year for upkeep this is nothing this is a huge this and so more should have been put into this and now it's going to take experts that francis and i have arches instead have to come in from all over europe to help out here hundreds and hundreds of experts will be needed and special craftsman to sort of put this church into a state so that the people of paris will one day which is far in the future be able to enter it again and recognize it as their church. thank you so much. around the world has been asking people in moscow london. for their reactions to last night's. it's just awful when i sort of it was hard to believe we're all going to come down with an international incident it's ancient architecture for us
russians this is a tragedy and it's a tragedy for everyone that's on saturday after everyone in russia seems to be very upset for example if i don't find out about the fire from the new spot from my friends everyone was sharing the information and saying that it's such a shame. because it's a great loss. does not only belong to the christian world. christianity is a religious belief you know and we need to respect religious beliefs and he said the more i'm sorry about this it's horrible because he took a few child has survived until today and he's been there from the middle ages. all religions are holy it is story structure i think about the memories. so sad is all for west where so i work but i suppose i will post every day i look at it from my office window and i'd be devastated when you see paris. is what you
think of paris oh beautiful buildings they attach it to something very important don't they it's not just historical it's a sacred nature of the building as well and i think that's very important to. keep those in our cities said to so yeah it must be devastating i feel very sad for the french people. and you can share your reaction to the noted on with us on social media just use the hashtag might not true down twitter well as the fire spreads so did misinformation social media rather than stop the town you too may have made the situation worse we call reese has that story well could nicol what happened well basically on you tube already has had lots of problems with misleading information being spread on this channel for a long time so what they came up with is a new tool that works automatically and it is there to identify and also keep on false information so this tools only available in the u.s. and south korea you might not be familiar with it yesterday when several media
outlets decided that they wanted to live stream this event in paris the toll backlash it basically scanned the pictures of the cathedral that was inflamed and the took it for the twin towers in new york and then linked it to fake news story about nine eleven so what happened was there was a window that was created under that live stream with an explainer about nine eleven and that directly linked to terrorist attack which is obviously not what it was for those looking for that obviously also of course there's a lot of confusion among those who saw it it was taken down after a couple of minutes but you can imagine what people must have felt that so you tube has since apologized what has been the damage all the damage is if you look a bit further obviously like social media is also a great platform to fuel with conspiracy theories and in this case
fons has also like a big history with terrorist attacks sadly enough and so we had a look at twitter just right after the news of the fire broke out and already saw that people were tweeting about this probably being a muslim attack that muslims are now burned catholic churches and he also actually saw that that people go into much more trouble we have a video maybe we want to have a look at it and have it close listen to it as well. just maybe. yeah well the pictures are real but the sound is fake and if you just think about this and then think that an online platform basically links a fake news story to not trust them and links that to terrorist attack well this is food for those people who are just craving for these conspiracy theories and it can
have like this in fact you know it can boost more conspiracy theories being online and it's not only that it's also about this tool basically since it's also an automatic leave being moved while it's failed big time if you put it like man versus machine a human brain would have would have worked much better in this case just the editorial guidelines that kick in here and you need to be aware of them and i think in this case the two was not right ready for it it was good and all the cases of removing ice's propaganda videos but in this particular case of breaking news and maybe better have a human. you so wish. now we'll take a look at some of the other stories making news around the world a court in russia has convicted or no wage and manner of spying with intent to gather information about nuclear submarines tied to border god of the bird was jailed for fourteen years it was arrested in moscow in twenty seven team has

government control of a cyber space could be used to silence critics so thousands of people have taken part in protests against this proposed law let's get more from alexander is often in he's the coordinator for international relations at ross com for border that's a russian internet freedom project and he joins us from moscow welcome to day doubly so when lawmakers say they want to domestic internet what do they mean well actually slow our faith to regulate the main. protocols and technical infrastructure or the internet. they want to create a monitoring and control center which ols them to monitor or what happens on the internet and the most important to control relations between internet operators now is that your interpretation of what they want or is that what they have said they
want. what do they want actually they were saying that their main intention for this law is that septmonts of united states aggressive keep their strategy they said a lot of other reasons which motorways am too great for what are surely they wants just to control russian internet under a good reason. so if this is about control by the state why are they doing this now. well they trying to do this for years and actually previously as a trade to gain this possibility is through your international to newcome kitchens union or us internet international treaties on the internet but such regulations globally doesn't exist unlike for telephone and telegraph they just realize it is now they fail to cast regulation of global internet from community to the
state through all night e.u. souls they just grew up to make the slow just for russia so when critics look at these proposals and say well this is just like china's great fire wall i'm guessing here you would agree with that assessment. well as this low is really general it just gives rights as a state to control technical aspects of some protocols they're working pledges lation should be written in the next twelve year by government and means three ofter communications we actually do not know what they will write down as a documents which need to be executed but in russia the whole waves call for the post but prepare for us of course and besides generally galatians they are actually able to agree that cheney's can arrow so activists like yourself you look at this
these proposals you need to you see the problems that you demonstrate a saurus most people in russia concerned are they bothered to that even noticed. well because this all is really more about thirteen x. the general audience doesn't see much trouble because it's about technics but weird roskam sort border and from other organisations and opposition political parties throat the rise of weren't as of general public that such regulations are dangerous not just for freedom of speech but also for economic models which drives internet fast and are always development of inexpensive and oh well above for all internet very interesting thank you for joining us alexander is often in from russia comes from border thank you thank you. quick line of sports now in the bundesliga had to balance a pile will finish his coach at the end of the season after
